Building a smartphone-class user experience into your embedded device

Duration: 1 hour


The proliferation of smartphones has raised expectations for user interfaces and wireless connectivity. It doesn't matter whether you are creating a medical device, building automation system, vending machine, industrial controller, home appliance, or printer/copier, customers using your device will expect it to provide many of the same features they experience on their smartphones or gaming consoles. We'll look at some of those expected features like:

  • 3D graphics
  • touch gestures
  • full audio-video
  • speech recognition
  • wireless and cloud connectivity

Nonetheless, the system-level integration required for achieving this rich user experience can be very complex. In this session, we'll identify many of the components and techniques for achieving this integration successfully.

Estimated length:

1 hour, including Q & A.
